Correction: Hi guys, I’m updating this as I had the incorrect list of brewers attending the festival. I apologize for the oversight. I’ve amended this entry to reflect the correct beer list. So sorry! 

It’s April and April means the beer festival season BEGINS.

I’m headed to The Brooklyn’s annual Kingston Craft Beer Festival on the 8th and oh man, is it gonna be fun. Yes, it is sold out, but there might be tickets at the door. This week’s episode talks about what new breweries I’m looking forward to, beer styles I prefer, and why I wish I knew more about cider.

I promise in the episode that I would give you with a list of participating breweries (complete with links!). If you are a fan of any of them, let me know which ones. I want to know about some of the new-to-me ones I’ve mention.

Without further ado:

Whew! A lot breweries, sure, but most of all, a lot of noteworthy breweries. This list is subject to change, because beer festivals can be in flux. As a result, check online before heading over to avoid disappointment.

Find the show on iTunes and Stitcher. Connect with me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and on Untappd. Furthermore, if you see me at this festival, come say hi, and take a picture with me for the Instagram feed, yes? I will see you there!

Episode 9: Getting Beer From a Stone (City Ales, that is)

Aaand here I am sorry for the delay in a new episode! It won’t ever happen again, Girl Scout’s honour. (Okay, I was a Brownie. I don’t know why I never made it as an actual Girl Scout.)

I’m really excited about this episode because not only do I get to rave excitedly about my local, I get to talk to their newest assistant brewer, Kelly, while I do so. Well, actually, Kelly does most of the talking, while I do most of the adoring because Stone City Ales here in K-Town is making amazing beers. She and I got together over the Thanksgiving weekend (that would be Thanksgiving here in Canada, Americans) to chat about how she became passionately involved in beer and why San Diego should rightly be visited as a Beer Mecca.

So what are you waiting for?? Go have a listen! When you’re done, leave a review/rating over on iTunes, recommend me to some like-minded beery folks, and yes: I’m on the Twitter and on the Instagram. Come say hi! You’ll definitely want to stay connected this way as I’m off to the Southeastern US for a heavy brewery/interview tour!

A special shout-out to the following lovely breweries for providing me with beer and smiles on the longish drive back from Port Perry to Kingston:
